Holy Cross Hospital Receives Top Performer Quality Award for the Third Consecutive Year
(Silver Spring, Maryland) – For the third consecutive year, Holy Cross Hospital was named Top Performer on Key Quality Measures by The Joint Commission for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.
We can proudly say that there is no other health care team in Maryland or the District of Columbia, including from academic medical centers — and only 67 in the nation — who has achieved this multi-year distinction for four adult measures.
To be recognized as a top performer in any one of the key quality measures, the organization must:
achieve cumulative performance of 95 percent or above across all reported accountability measures,
achieve performance of 95 percent or above on each and every reported accountability measure (where there are at least 30 cases), and
have at least one core measure set that has a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and within that measure set, all applicable individual accountability measures have a performance rate of 95 percent or above. A 95 percent score means a hospital provided an evidence based practice 95 times out of 100 opportunities.
"As we work together to get ready for the opening of the first new hospital in Montgomery County in 35 years, Holy Cross has a lot to celebrate," said Kevin J. Sexton, president & CEO of Holy Cross Health, "and we will keep working on it every day."
Together with this year’s 2013 Excellence Award for Quality Improvement from the Delmarva Foundation for Medical Care for the third consecutive year, Holy Cross Hospital continues to be recognized for real improvements in numerous measurements of quality.
